Not exactly the most timely review, but I was very impressed with the Christmas Meal provided so wanted to write this review anyway.
There were around 20 rowdy members to my party and luckily for other diners we were given the top section of the restaurant. It's lovely up there, exposed beams and flickering candles, and we had our own dedicated waiter who was cheerful and good fun. We'd all pre-ordered from the very tempting Christmas menu. I had a squid salad to start-beautifully cooked, incredibly fresh squid served with juicy sundried tomatoes, rocket leaves and a light and simple olive oil dressing. Really enjoyed this, I love squid when it's so well prepared and not covered in a batter. Top marks. I then had a butternut squash risotto, served with deep-fried samphire. This again was absolutely delicious-the samphire was crisp and salty and complimented the cheese stirred through the risotto and the tender butternut squash. I pinched a little of my friend's macaroni cheese which accompanied his roast beef (and odd chocie we thought at first but it works!) and it was delicious. I also managed to squeeze in a dessert of passion fruit cheesecake which was sweet, sharp and perfect. The 3 course menu was on the more expensive side but so worth it, the best Christmas meal I've had, so much better than insipid vegetables with a dry bit of turkey. Will definitely be going back to sample the wood fired pizzas. Very impressive.
